About the Artist
Portland, Maine''s first Poet Laureate presents poems in a lively, engaging manner, sometimes in two voices with a second presenter, sometimes with music and some sign language. ""He is a musician and acrobat, his book Brothers of Morning ablaze with imagination,"" said Laure-Anne Bosselaar.
""A burning, tender voice,"" said Baron Wormser, Maine''s former Laureate. His performance work, The Thinking Heart, a program in two voices, with cello, based on the writings of a Dutch woman who died in the Holocaust, is currently touring Maine. ""A profoundly moving experience,"" said Tricia Ryden, Assistant Director of Wiggin Memorial Library, in Stratham, NH. ""The program was beautifully done, the combination of voices and cello extraordinary."" (Go to the first website listed below for the full story.) He was given the Maine Alliance for Art Education''s Bill Bonyun Award 2006 ""for exemplified talent and professionalism as an artist.""
